The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation, MBRF, has announced details about three books being written by Emirati writers after their visit to Japan last April under the ‘Writers Exchange' category of the MBRF Dubai International Programme for Writing, which aims to encourage Arab talent to showcase creative efforts in the local and global community.
In their books, the writers Mohsin Suleiman, Alhonof Mohammed and Talal Salem, present the culture, history and social life of Japan in intricate detail, based on their experiences during their three-week stay there.
Jamal bin Huweireb, Managing Director of MBRF, said, "The Emirati writers have a clear idea about the final form of their literary works which summarise their experiences of life in Japan. They have dealt with topics that highlight the cultural ethics of the Japanese people, their work-life balance as well as their poetry and theatre.
Through the Writers Exchange category, the Dubai International Programme for Writing seeks to raise the level of literary capabilities of young Emirati and Arab writers, and enrich the cultural movement in UAE and the Arab world.
It also showcases the experiences of global writers in the UAE to strengthen the cultural exchange between the UAE and the world and spread knowledge about civilisations and cultures of different peoples.
